This isn't the first time Americans have been treated poorly by our friendly neighbors to the south. But at least this time they weren't chanting, "Osama...Osama..." like they did at an Olympic soccer match in 2004.
The pageant turned painful for Miss USA Rachel Smith who suffered a rough trek in the evening gown phase. The high-heels proved hellish as she fell to the stage. She made a quick recovery and the judges showed lenience. The audience seemed less forgiving. During the question and answer segment, the crowd in Mexico City taunted the contestant with loud boos and whistles. Smith stuck to her game plan and finished as fourth runner-up.
What kind of person boos an Olympic athlete or a beauty pageant contestant? Not a friend, not an ally, not anyone with even a modicum of respect for your country and it's people.
